What will they learn?

brainMEDIA LITERACY

In this subject 5-13 year-old students will learn how to behave online and understand the risks in the digital world. Students will also learn how to use hardware and software efficiently. Read more...
 

robotROBOTICS

Constructing and programming robots will give kids serious problem-solving skills. By teaching the basics of engineering, we are furnishing them with a foundational skill set that could become essential to them in the future. Read more...
 

webWEB DEVELOPMENT

Learn to read and write in different programming languages. Students will understand how programming languages are used while creating several web projects. Read more...
 

gamesGAME DEVELOPMENT

Game Development is the art of creating games and describes the design, development and release of a video game. This subject will equip them with programming and designing skills but it will also help them understand the online environment better. Read more...
 

digitalDIGITAL CREATIVITY

In this subject we unite what we have learned on the rest of the subjects so that students are able to understand, internalize and use their new skills in more interactive and creative projects. Read more...

The courses

YEARLY COURSES

This is the most complete and fun course, we start teaching in autumn and we go up to the end of June, during this period your students will learn all 5 subjects, develop several projects and have a full understanding of technology in every sense: engineering, programming, design, media literacy and much more.

SHORT COURSES

The school can also book a short course for their students. These courses will take 4 weeks only and they will create a full project in the game development, web development or robotics learning areas. They are really fun and the outcome for the kids will be huge.

 

For both types of courses: All administration is taken care by galactIQ. Parents choose their group, sign up and pay via our website www.galactiq.app. Also important to notice that there is a minimum group size of 8 students.

Next steps

LET'S START WITH A FREE DEMO

Why not starting with a free demo? We can give a full lesson for free for a whole class. In this way your students, teaching staff and even parents can see if our lessons are as interesting and fun as we promise. Send us an email to info@galactiq.app and we’ll arrange all the details.

SIGNING UP

Our team will enable a signing up form for parents to choose subscription plan, day and group. Your school can start sending the information about the courses to parents and we’ll get everything ready for the starting date.

HOW ARE THE LESSONS?

Each weekly lesson has a duration of 1hr and during that time, our students will learn new concepts and they also apply them empirically. We promote teamwork as much as individual work and  we challenge kids with problems they will have to find solutions to. 

 

ABOUT THE PROJECTS

Our methodology alternates the five subjects of our curriculum, one per month. So kids could start learning game development in the first 4 weeks, then we move on to robotics for another 4 weeks and so forth. Each project has a goal that the class will have to complete, it can be -for instance- to create a website or construct a robotic factory.

 

ABOUT OUR PLATFORM

Each lesson is super-well structured thanks to our interactive online learning tool galactiq.app. It’s an easy to use plug-and-play system where teachers can prepare the lesson and teach the knowledge to kids.

  • "A practical approach with a lot of creativity ..."

    My kids attended the galactIQ Academy for more than two years. During this period, Diego and Gabriel learned many cool things such as programming with Scratch, creating websites with Javascript and HTML, programming Lego based robots, among others. 

    The staff are kind, professional and always willing to help. The approach is hands on with a lot of creativity involved. It was a very pleasant and rewarding experience for my kids. I strongly recommended it for all kids (and adults) who want to develop programming and robotics skills while applying their creativity and enjoying an entertaining learning environment.

  • A fantastic tool for teachers

    "Galactiq is a fantastic tool for teachers. It helps manage the flow of the lesson, get an overview of how students are doing, encourages student participation and collaboration. It is very comfortable to teach using Galactiq!"

    Paulius Skaisgir
  • Simple and effective

    "The step by step construction and coding instructions on galatIQ were simple and effective, ensuring student success regardless of their ability.  Along with the instructions, the online tutorials kept students engaged and encouraged them to grow in confidence over the course of the week.  The students particularly were inspired to be ambitious with their designs; creating unique and innovative robots. Overall, it is a brilliant experience!"

  • "...the lesson was so well scaffolded..."

    We used the first episode in the robotics series and our students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.  The instructions were comprehensive for both the students and the teachers and the children could follow them to build their individual rover and were thrilled to see that the commands they set made the rover move.  As teachers, we valued the fact that the lesson was so well scaffolded and it included opportunities for discussion as well as for practising digital skills.  We can see the potential of this educational solution and how it could complement a primary school’s curriculum.

  • It's easy and fun

    "Galactiq is the perfect way to learn and teach coding and robotics to younger kids, even when having minimal to no coding experience yourself. Before each class, I go over today's lesson to gain an understanding of today's targets and goals. With hands-on information solely available for teachers, you can use Galactiq as a manual to learn everything needed to teach the class."

  • Impressive!

    "The video game development episodes are broken down into manageable steps, which allowed all the children in my class to develop a functioning, playable game. What really impressed me though, were the opportunities to experiment with the code; allowing my class to create a truly unique game. I can’t believe how quick we went from zero to hero!"

this season

Brain

Media Literacy

Behaviour, safety and understanding
A 'must' for all kids in primary schools. Students will learn to recognise the complex mechanisms of the online environment they grow surrounded with. Through debating and investigating your class will fully understand the online world.

Robotics

Learning engineering is key
By teaching engineering and robotics to kids at an early age, you are furnishing them with a foundational skill set that could become essential to them in the future.

Game Development

Plan, design, develop and test
The video game creation process includes planning, designing, programming, testing, and launching a game. A complete digital creative process that reinforces the confidence and programming skills of your students.

Web Development

Programming languages ​​from an early age
Programming languages are part of a strong and smart education for the new generations. Javascript, CSS, HTML or Python are easy to teach and learn thanks to the galactIQ educational method.

Digital Creativity

Where they expand their creative horizons
We want our students not only to understand the rudiments and fundamentals of technology, at galactIQ we also aim at making primary school students creative with the tools we learn to use.
